( – Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) told “Fox and Friends” last week that the most offensive thing about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton comparing Republicans to terrorists is that Democrats won’t even call “terrorists, terrorists,” but they have no problem calling their political opponents that.

“Here’s what’s most offensive about it: They won’t call terrorists, terrorists, going all the way back to Benghazi and before that, but they call their political opponents terrorists. So you’re gonna see a lot more of this in the weeks to come,” predicted Rubio on Friday.

Last Thursday, Clinton said people expect “extreme views about women” from terrorist groups, but “it’s a little hard to take coming from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States.”

“Senator, according to Hillary Clinton, you’re one of those extremist Republican terrorists,” said Fox News host Steve Doocy.

“She’s desperate. She’s panicked. Her campaign is in a bad shape, and I think, I think it was Tucker a few minutes that was talking about it. Her views are the ones that are radical,” said Rubio.

“They’re in a lot of trouble. It’s been well-documented, maybe even criminal charges around the corner, and she’s been exposed as being incompetent and of course deceitful on the handling of the e-mails and so forth,” he added.
